Today, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson issues the following statement on the U.S. Department of Labor's September employment report:
"I am very pleased to learn that the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent and that 114,000 jobs were added in September. The unemployment rate fell to its lowest since President Obama took office and this is a strong indication that our economy is on the right track towards improvement.
House Democrats and the President are working hard to provide tax cuts for working families, to invest in small businesses and manufactures. While we are headed on the right track, there is still more to be done to bring security to American families who are struggling in our economy.
I will continue working with my House colleagues to ensure that all Americans have access to the American Dream."
